Brand New Day

Thanksgiving is now behind us and my son is safely on his way back up to school. Everyone's health is either good or improving. The Christmas season is here and can now be enjoyed without Halloween or Thanksgiving getting in the way. I enjoyed a great experience at my high school reunion and I'm now in the right frame of mind to get back to taking care of myself.

I had to make a few decisions recently when some issues were reaching critical mass in my life. One of the results of those decisions was to temporarily put my weight management efforts on the back burner for a while. It made it easier in the long run to be able to do the things I needed to do without stressing over every meal. My only regret is that I interrupted my writing here without giving some warning in advance.

The key is that I knew it was only temporary and now that things have settled, I'm back to doing what I have to do to take care of me, including keeping up with the blog. I'll be working to lose the weight that I've gained and get back to being more active (I even got in some push ups this morning!). And thanks to my reunion, I now have a buddy to help keep me on track.

There are still a few bumps in the road looming over the horizon, but I'll deal with them as they get here. In the meantime I'll be enjoying this brand new day and getting back into the swing of things.

It sure is good to have a buddy along the way too. I miss my meeting buddies. They have stopped coming and I don't go often either.
